Made to Be Played: Traditional Art of Kentucky Luthiers
The Kentucky Arts Council will present “Made to Be Played: Traditional Art of Kentucky Luthiers,” which chronicles Kentucky’s rich tradition of instrument making. The exhibit is dedicated to the memory of master luthier, craftsman, instrument inventor and musician, Homer Ledford, and it explores the important role of luthiers in Kentucky music communities.
The exhibit will run in conjunction with The Kentucky Market at the Southern Legislative Conference in Lexington, July 10-12 at the Lexington Convention Center. The conference will bring legislators and staff members from 15 southern states to Kentucky.
“Made to Be Played” will be in the convention center’s third floor lobby adjacent to The Kentucky Market, and can be viewed any time during the conference. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
The Kentucky Arts Council and the Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea present The Kentucky Market July 10-12, a curated selection of artwork and specialty items handcrafted in the Commonwealth. The Kentucky Market is part of the Southern Legislative Conference, held every year in a southern state.
